Looking for the full slide set for my “Alternate History: Creating Stories by Changing the Past” presentation? See below!

Con Report: Pulpfest 2019

Pulpfest, held outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is not a convention I would have attended normally, but my publisher held an event there and I wouldn’t have missed that for the world. Raw Dog Screaming Press celebrated their sixteenth anniversary with readings from many of their authors, and I had a blast spending time with oldContinue reading “Con Report: Pulpfest 2019”

Con Report: Balticon 53

I had another fantastic weekend at my “local” convention, Balticon, over Memorial Day weekend! This convention was my first time manning a table in the dealer room for the entire event, which was both exhausting and fun, and definitely offered a different perspective on the convention experience. Luckily, I had friend and author Cara McKinnonContinue reading “Con Report: Balticon 53”

March means a return to one of my favorite events of the year: Cleveland ConCoction!

Cleveland Concoction 2019 Schedule

I’m excited to return to one of my favorite annual events this weekend! I’ll be in Cleveland, Ohio, for Concoction 2019. The spouse is jealous because I’m taking the Tesla for it’s first-ever road trip, as in, I will have to stop at least once each way to recharge at a supercharger stop. But onceContinue reading “Cleveland Concoction 2019 Schedule”

Con Report: Farpoint 2019

Growing up as a military brat, I always had this sense that once I left a place, I would never be back. While looking for a house in the Baltimore area before sixth grade, my family briefly stayed at a hotel, the Hunt Valley Inn. Therefor, it’s always a bit bizarre to be back thereContinue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2019”
